    Esthers Hobbys, been open since 1938. survived having 6 feet of water in it about 12 years ago. The area its in has been seeing a bit of a resurgence in the last decade. 

    Bill and Walt's is still around but they moved outside of town. they only have 1 location now. 
    The hobby shop in Cranberry is Hobby Express, they moved to a much, much better location up the road in a busy shopping center. This is my go too hobby shop.

    Stopped today, nothing on clearance but they finally got some new stock in, the Revell 65 Foose Impala, and the Starsky and Hutch Torino. Used a Coupon and got another Torino for under $14.

    Website back up, and even though they are closing up shop they have a new kit available. A 70 Mercury wagon
  8. gasman added a post in a topic Which kit is better?   

    Avoid the MPC 69 Camaro and original Monogram 69 Camaro, both have major proportion issues
    for a 69 the Revell kit is the way too go, The AMT 68 kit is'nt bad, but if you want a 67-68 Camaro get the Revell version.
    The AMT 70 1/2 Camaro is also very good. But make sure it's the new one, not the version from he early 90's.

    for those curious about how the lightning rod shifter works. click this link https://youtu.be/_nSGrfzJdd0
    so it works kinda like an modern auto/stick style transmission. but its no substitute for a third pedal. you could not get a manual transmission in any G-Body after 1981.

    Looks like the next issue of that kit will be the FE3-X.

    Tower Hobbies got some more in. I put in an order for one My local Hobby Shop told me they got 6 in early this week and they where gone the same day. not expecting another order for a few weeks. 
  15. gasman added a post in a topic Moebius Belvedere   

    I got 2 of these kits. One the body is perfectly straight. The other is warped beyond repair. Moebius needs to make the boxes a little bit bigger. Other then that they look great. Panel lines are a little light But I'll rescribe them anyways so it's not a big deal.
